Problem of Protruding Teeth

Protruding teeth are the second most common problem facing patients, encountered by many doctors after dental crowding in the jaw cavity. Protrusion means an increase in the length of the front teeth of one jaw compared to the teeth of the other jaw, such as the length of the upper jaw teeth compared to the lower jaw teeth, which is the most common case of protrusion among children, the elderly, and also young people. The percentage of excess length ranges between 1 or 2 mm, and the percentage of the population suffering from protrusion problems reaches 10% or 15% in Asia and the Middle East, while in America, Europe, and North Africa, 20% of their population suffers from genetic or acquired protrusion problems.

Most of these percentages are for individuals who have suffered from tooth loss problems due to violent collision or malfunction during their childhood, causing a negative impact on the natural growth of teeth in these areas, which are in the first or front row of the teeth for both jaws, or problems of inflammation, erosion, or adhesions in the mouth joints that hinder the movement and stability of the affected jaw in a backward position, causing noticeable and eye-catching tooth protrusion. The most prominent and important solution to this problem, which provided the most efficient results, is orthodontics, which we will mention all its advantages and importance in treating it in detail in the following points.

Causes of Tooth Protrusion

Tooth protrusion is the problem of the hour for many dental patients in various centers, clinics, and hospitals specialized recently. To know the correct and appropriate treatment method for each case, we need to reach the causes that led to suffering from this problem, which are:

  • Genetic factors, which are the primary cause of tooth protrusion cases, especially among Africans.
  • The genes of the affected person, which make them undergo treatment.
  • Pushing the front teeth with the tongue and not stabilizing them in their place.
  • Breathing from the mouth instead of the nose.
  • Placing fingers in the mouth.
  • Using baby bottles or pacifiers for young infants.

Protruding Dental Braces

The main goal of installing protruding dental braces on the surface of the teeth is to try to return the shape and structure of the teeth to their natural position in the jaw cavity, straight vertically, neither twisted nor protruding, so that the bite of the front teeth of both jaws is correct and healthy.

For braces to play this role, it is necessary to tighten its wires and brackets well on the teeth and adjust them as these teeth move towards their correct position until they reach the position determined for them at the end of the specified period after many months or years. Cases that require installing braces on the crown are mentioned in this article.

Duration of Protruding Dental Braces

Protruding dental braces are one of the types of braces that require a long period to provide the expected results from them and what patients hope for, and the average duration for different pathological cases ranges between 12 and 18 months, but there are some exceptions, and the period their teeth need for their braces and reshaping their structure does not last less than 6 months.

There are also rare cases where the installation of braces lasted 30 months or exceeded the limit of three years, and we conclude from this that the only factor in determining this duration is the nature of the patient’s case and their health condition and the extent of damage to their teeth, so there is no fixed standard or fixed duration.

How Long Do the Results of Protruding Dental Braces Last?

Dental braces provide good and high-quality results after their installation, especially after using the retainer immediately after its removal and achieving these results, as the retainer works to confirm these results and prevent the teeth from relapsing and returning to their incorrect position again.

This ensures that the results of the braces last a lifetime as long as the person maintains the health of the teeth and adheres to all the special care methods and diligently executes the necessary medical instructions after the braces are complete periodically, and get a perfect smile thanks to the advanced protruding dental braces at The Dental Center.

Other Problems Treated by Dental Braces

Dental braces treat many different and varied problems affecting the oral cavity and teeth, the most common of which are tooth protrusion, but there are other problems, such as:

  • Gaps between the teeth or large and small spaces.
  • Tooth loss.
  • Misalignment of the dental structure.
  • Incorrect biting of the jaws’ teeth, also known as bite.

How to Prevent Tooth Protrusion

Tooth protrusion, in most cases, occurs to the front teeth and cannot be prevented if it is due to genetic factors or damage and malfunction in the bone tissue of the jaw cavity. However, if the protrusion is acquired or occurs due to incorrect habits or behaviors, it is possible to prevent it by avoiding these habits, which are represented in:

  • Preventing placing fingers in the mouth.
  • Protecting the gums from any potential damage by brushing them daily.
  • Eliminating any plaque or tartar deposits using various dental care tools.
  • Wearing a mouth guard in case of playing violent games or training or during sleep if there is suffering from teeth grinding.

It is possible to follow up with a specialist doctor regularly so that the teeth are continuously examined and adhere to the medical instructions that the doctor may advise the patient, along with drinking plenty of water and chewing sugar-free gum if the mouth is dry. It is also essential to quit smoking and avoid alcohol, reduce ice cream, and ensure to eat foods allowed in the diet recommended by the doctor.
